December 2021 Newsletter

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!  We are so excited for the month of December.  December is a time of traditions, celebrations, family and friends!  Throughout the month students will be learning about all of  the holiday symbols, what a tradition is, and sharing their own traditions with their classmates.  Students will enjoy learning about the meaning of the holidays and embracing the concept of giving.

Our school will be closed on Friday, December 24th and closed on Friday, December 31st.  

In case of bad weather, please look for an email from Links2Home concerning any delays and/or closures.  You can also check out our website or go to Channel 6 ABC and look for Chesterbrook Academy-Arrandale.

We will continue to go outside as long as the temperature stays above 32 degrees.  Please make sure you have a warm coat, hat, and gloves here for your child.  Also, please check that your child’s spare clothing is size and season appropriate!  We recommend having a spare mask or two for children ages 2 and older to keep in their cubby just in case.

Have A Safe And Happy Holiday Season and And Best Wishes For A Happy and Healthy 2022~

Last Minute Educational Gift Ideas for Children

Are you still searching for the perfect gift for the little ones in your life this holiday season? If so, look no further! We’ve compiled three of our favorite educational subscription boxes that you’ll enjoy with your child month after month. 1. KiwiCo’s Koala Crate (ages 2-4 years)

The Koala Crate from KiwiCo contains easy and convenient STEM activities that celebrate children’s innate curiosity and creativity. Each month, you’ll receive all the materials necessary to complete a fun activity related to science, art, imaginative play, and more. The activities are related to a common theme, such as music, camping, and even rainbows! You’ll also receive an instructional booklet, magazine with educational content and activities, and access to KiwiCo’s online activity portal. KiwiCo also offers crates for children ages 0-24 months and 5+ years. 2. Little Passport’s Early Explorers Box (ages 3-5 years)

The Early Explorers Box from Little Passport is perfect for children who are curious about geography and different cultures. Your child will participate in engaging art and science activities as they explore a new adventure every month, from oceans, animals, landmarks, and world celebrations just to name a few. The first box comes with a suitcase, welcome letters, activity booklet, stickers and a wall-sized map to chart your child’s journeys. Each month after, you’ll receive a themed activity with an interactive souvenir and booklet. Little Passport also offers boxes for older children! 3. Raddish (ages 4-14 years)

If your child loves to help you cook new things, Raddish is a great gift option. Raddish’s mission is to bring families together and nurture children’s confidence in the kitchen and beyond. Each box contains three illustrated recipe cards centered around a common theme, such as global cuisine and holiday celebrations. In addition to the recipes, you’ll receive three skill cards, a creative kitchen project, age-appropriate cooking tools, and a grocery list to complete your recipes. Dietary substitutions for each kit are also available online.
